Brave and the Bold #9 - Joe Kubert art


Brave and the Bold v1 #9, 1956 - Sighting a fire troll at sea, the village fisherman refuse to out again, despite the Viking Prince's urging. In both Joe Kubert's layouts and drawings, there is no lack of effort or detail. His linework and cross-hatching are masterful throughout. The fire troll in the opening splash  recedes into the background, perhaps due to a different medium (charcoal?). The technique effectively increases the scene's depth and is used no where else in subsequent pages. This story was later reprinted in >Best of Brave and the Bold #6. Other artists in this issue include Russ Heath and Irv Novick. Cover by Novick. This is number 9 of 33 Brave and the Bold issues with Kubert art and/or covers (not including reprints). Find >this issue or more >Kubert or >Brave and the Bold issues on ebay.
